Two of our baby monkey tailed skinks. We have 3 right now but I found if you hold 2 in one hand they try to bite each other. Love these things but I feel so bad for their mothers because they are huge and their nails are wicked sharp even though they were just born. Can't be a fun birth.

It is legal to buy them. CITES just effects import and export of species.

They have such a fierce look, very primal. Amazingly intense set of eyes.

The late Bert Langerwerf and his facility Agama International have had several triplets. As far as I know AI is the only place that has recorded triplets. We got our stock from his family.

They are in their winter enclosures right now. I really hate their winter enclosures and will be changing them hopefully next year.

Oh man I used to have one.... I loved that thing so much, but he was a wild caught and had salmonella and parasites. He wound up at the vet's for quite some time in their hospital, and I had to syringe feed him and he never pulled through.... He went downhill so fast when i got him, it was pretty sad. This was back in the mid-90's, mind you.
